I send e-mails but they don't seem to rach the other person. The subsystem keeps sending back the same message.

"This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Technical details of permanent failure:

Since you made that topic on Astral Dynamics there have been quite a posts
there. I fro one am interested in how you made the audio. I've tried to read
as much as a can on frequencies influencing chakras and kundalini but only a
few of them seem likely. I also read that the frequencies may be different
for different people. I would be greateful if you could explain this audio


----- Message truncated -----"
Does anyone know what's causing these problems?

Thanks

Are you completely certain you sent a message with that title?
Are you getting the exact same reply each time, or does it differ in content and Title?

If 'No" to the first question, you are receiving spam disguised as a mailer-deamon reply to a bogus E-mail.
If "Yes" to the second question, you are receiving spam.

Yes

It varies slightly, but it's still basically the same message.

I doubt it's spam as the e-mails never arrive at their destination. I've tried this with a Hotmail account I created.

Generally this error message indicates that either the E-mail address is not valid, or that the receiving server could not find it internally and "gave up" on finding it. It could also (but not normally) mean that the message was bounced because the recipient's in-box was full.

E-mail addresses are very demanding and must be very precise; I would think your first option would be to double-check that the address was entered exactly. I take it that this does not happen to ALL your sent E-mails, just to some.

Well it's the right address. I also don't get a message sent back when the address isn't valid. It also can't be the inbox full becasue I created an email account today and I still didn't work. It's also unlikely that almost everyone I email has a full inbox.

SO what I just done now was create a Gmail account. I did it different this time. Other times I created a Gmail account I did it through my original account. This time I went to the Google homepage and created it. This time I wasn't affected by the problem. From this experiment it seems to be a virus. It seems to go though my contacts and sending the virus to them.

Though I just done something with a friend. I added him to my contacts and sent him an e-mail, he sent it back. I worked. If I was right then it shouldn't work. What's going on here?

Well the account I created that I thought was safe is now f***ed. It seems to only be a Gmail problem. Are other Gmail users having this problem.
